Feeling tired, nauseous, or weak? It could be that you, like about half of Americans, aren’t getting enough magnesium. This mineral is so important for energy generation in the body as it turns food into fuel for your daily life. But it also plays other essential roles, too, like supporting heart, bone, and nerve health.
Getting an infusion of magnesium in an IV drip is a surefire way to get enough of this critical mineral so you can maintain an optimal state of well-being.
With this type of IV therapy, magnesium is added to the sterile fluids in your drip bag. The IV fluids are then infused into your bloodstream via a drip leading to one of your veins, typically in your arm. This allows for the best, fastest absorption of magnesium compared to taking an oral magnesium supplement.
Magnesium IV therapy isn’t limited to magnesium as a single ingredient. It can also include other minerals and vitamins that work well together. For instance, the Myers’ Cocktail is a popular IV infusion that includes magnesium as well as vitamins B12 and C, B Complex vitamins, zinc, and glutathione. There are many different uses of this IV therapy, from easing dehydration symptoms to alleviating the effects of migraines.
The typical daily recommendation for magnesium intake is 300 to 400 mg. If you can’t get this amount of magnesium in the foods you eat, you could be considered deficient. Foods rich in this mineral include spinach, tofu, whole grains (like brown rice), nuts (almonds and cashews), and seeds (sesame and pumpkin).
Common, milder signs of magnesium deficiency include:
Severe deficiencies may lead to more serious problems, such as heart arrhythmia and seizures. You should seek prompt medical attention if your magnesium deficiency has progressed to this point. For milder symptoms, you want to reverse the deficiency by getting your body the magnesium it needs with an IV drip.
There are many reasons why you should make sure you’re getting enough magnesium on a daily basis. Among the many reported benefits:
A magnesium IV drip benefits your overall health in several ways. People can use magnesium IV therapy for:
Some research indicates that there may be a link between low magnesium levels and anxiety disorders, and that supplementation can help with mild anxiety symptoms. While this is a promising area for more in-depth research, many people find magnesium IV drips helpful when they are experiencing an increase in their anxiety symptoms, such as fatigue, body pain, and sleep loss.
